Happenings Around Our Homestead

Patches, absolutely HATES winter!

We have been having the most unusual weather for December here in upstate NY. I am not complaining though! No snow. Not really cold temperatures. In fact, today I am wearing shorts and we let our wood stove go out. We have had some sprinkling of flurries some days, rained last night. Now if it had been cold like usual it would have been snow. No sun to speak of. The cold could come in at any time though.

Took a dinner to my FIL's house in Johnson City, NY

Sunday, we (my husband, son and I all contributed) made a second Thanksgiving dinner. and took it to my father-in-law's house. My brother-in-law lives with his dad, and they were missing a "woman's touch" around the holidays. They don't eat much between the two of them. So that dinner will probably last them a few days. I made double amounts of everything, and we already finished ours'.

Dreaming of starting seeds in 4 months!

I am already planning my garden for spring. Spring is not that far away now. Less than four months! So I will be ordering seeds I need, though I don't need a lot this year. It always seems to help when it turns cold, to plan your garden. Keeps you mood hopeful that the cold will not last.

Into the forest the eagle flew!

Yesterday, my son and I were out in the backyard while I was washing laundry. All of a sudden he was yelling, "look it look it look it!" I looked at where he was looking, and there was a huge eagle flying low between the barn and us. He was so close! I saw his face so clearly. I feel that was a sign of luck for both of us. Especially since it was the first one either of us have ever seen that was not in a zoo. I wish I could have taken a picture of him. He looked exactly like all the pictures you see of eagles............wings spread out, soaring! Awesome!
